    Well, there are some people who memorize camera manuals and can recall the various features of many camera brand and model by heart and can probably recite the specifications of popular cameras.

    But then again, that only means they can operate many kinds of camera and does not mean they are good photographers.

    that is so base...

    I always believe that the other system is better but because I am the best there is, I might as well give the rest of the field some handicap to facilitate fair play....

    The good thing about people changing equipment is you get to buy them later at 2nd/3rd/4th hand prices. They also contribute to economic growth.

    frankly, i like some major makers for some specific reason. i use canon, but i like nikon for the spotmetering etc... customizable WB +/- 3 steps etc... and who can forget the matrix colour metering?

    nothing is the best la, really. all are potentially good stuff, the eyes behind it determines the output. in my case, i'm limiting my setup...

    i guess if you're in your first few years of photography it's probably a good time to try out different systems 'for size'. But i believe to get seriously up to speed, you need to eventually settle down on your gear and know it intimately.

    i get disoriented sometimes just changing lenses: the AF speed, brightness, weight and handling are all changed. Don't even talk about changing bodies or entire systems.

    its their money, let the wookie win.
